"We are dedicated to providing only the best care."
Riverside, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
More than 3 million Americans spent at least part of 2013 in a skilled nursing facility, or nursing home and similar numbers are expected for 2014. Individuals and their families often encounter difficulty in choosing the right nursing home. Frequently asked questions including, "Where will I receive the highest quality care?" "Where will I be treated like a resident, not just a patient?" and "Where is the cleanest nursing home with the best food?" weigh heavily on their minds.
In an effort to lighten the burden of such an important choice, U.S. News and World Report recently released its fifth annual "Best Nursing Homes" report. Using data from the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes, U.S. News awarded the "Best Nursing Home" designation to homes that recently earned an overall rating of five stars, highlighting the top nursing homes in each state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas. The ratings cover more than 15,000 nursing homes nationwide and are freely available at http://www.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes. Medicare likewise rated each nursing home with one to five stars based on separate measures of quality of care, health-inspections record, and level of nurse staffing.
At the top of the list is Grand Terrace Health Care Center, a facility serviced by North American Health Care, Inc. Medicare has given all 35 facilities serviced by North American Health Care a five-star rating. Statistically, less than 23% of all skilled nursing facilities in the United States will achieve this level of success. No other similar organization in the United States has consistently achieved this level of patient care.
"The team here at Grand Terrace Health Care Center is dedicated to providing only the best care and rehabilitation for our patients," said Ryan Dickerson, Administrator of Grand Terrace Health Care Center. "We are honored to receive this designation and are so glad we are able to help our patients recover in such clean, comfortable, and friendly environment."
Residents are highly complimentary. “Everything is of such high standards that I do not worry about my mother when I leave here. I know she will be safe and well cared for, day or night”; “Physical Therapy was the best part of my stay here. Thanks so much for your great care”; and “Thank you for the wonderful care of my grandmother. She felt very ‘at home’ in your facility” are some of the more recent testimonials that speak to the high-quality care given at Grand Terrace Health Care Center.
